The US believes that members of the militant group blamed for Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday attacks may be at large and planning more assaults, US Ambassador Alaina Teplitz has told Reuters on Tuesday.  


“We do believe that the terrorist threat is ongoing and there may be active plotters. Active members of the attack group that carried out the terror attacks on Easter Sunday may still be at large,” she said. “We certainly have reason to believe that the active attack group has not been fully rendered inactive. We do believe that there is active planning underway.” Meanwhile IGP Pujith Jayasundara who had been sent on compulsory leave had also informed the senior police officials about another possible suicide attack by terrorists, before he was sent on compulsory leave.
